UNDERSTAND THE
INSURANCE-EMPLOYER RELATIONSHIP

Our ERISA Lawyers have helped hundreds of people who have had their employee benefit claims denied. Most people are not aware of the fact that if their health, short term disability, long term disability, or life insurance are provided through their employer, disputes arising thereunder are subject to the federal law of ERISA and thus exempt from state law.

In most of those cases remedies may be limited, and the rules and regulations for pursuing those remedies different or more restrictive than people expect. Our ERISA Lawyers have vast experience in handling matters in the specialized area of ERISA.

KNOWING WHEN TO CALL FOR HELP

When insurance is obtained individually instead of through an employer, and even in some cases of employer-provided insurance, ERISA will not apply to limit benefits or remedies, and California State law will apply. We have also successfully helped hundreds of people with these "bad faith" types of insurance claims.
